The itch started abt 2 weeks ago from the anus area. Then it spread all over my genital area which is now quite swollen and itchy because it developed into a rash.

I have been using a cream called, "Vagisil" for fast relief of feminine itching for around 4-5 days already. It seems to maintain my current condition but it is not getting any better.

I have been using a feminine wash for around 1 and a half years now so I doubt the problem arose due to irritation.

Is there any possibility that it might be an yeast infection or ( hopefully not) something worse?

p.s. I have a poor urinary tract. ( Just got a jab and antibiotics 4 months ago because of an infection that set in and caused me to have a very high fever and kept throwing up.)

Also the rash started when I took some medicine my dad bought from the drug store cause I had a very swollen throat.

A rash? Vagisil is not meant to treat a rash. You could have a yeast infection, that causes itching, but not usually a rash that starts in the anus and spreads, that sounds more like an std or something else. Yeast infections usually present with itching and discharge that is like cottage cheese, as well as irritation in the vagina and pain during sex.

Why are you using a feminine wash? It's completely unnecessary and may cause more harm than good.

You need to see a doctor if it's spreading. Have you had unprotected sex? IF so, sounds like an std. Get yourself to the doc.

A rash is bad.
